to roll over every time harry reid or nancy pelosi brings them to the white house. i have a list of "talking points." i should not have gotten hold of this. two democratic members of the house democratic leadership accompanied with their simplistic platitudes and bumper stickers "talking points" the one of the strategies is saying go demonize insurance companies. tell people, no more co-pays. no more out-of expenses, no more yearly caps on what you pay. even though the bill does not say these things nor will any of this happen, they're engaged in a propaganda campaign. can these simplistic "talking points" work? >> well, they can if they don't know the facts. the facts are yeah, they'll do all that. you just won't get to see a doctor. you won't have any care. you don't have a co-peay or deductible. you won't have a tr or nurse or medicine! a quarter of all medicare money is spent in the last year of the patient's life. they can't say we want those people to die but that's what they mean. they are going to slice medicare. my father is 99 years old. he spent a week in the hospital,
for that. sean: what happens if chuck schumer and senator harry reid, but what if they go forward and used a reconciliation process because they don't have enough democratic senators on board for cloture. what happens then? >> i think that this destroys the unique aspect of the institution of the senate which is the 60 vote principle. jim might recall that i fought hard for that principle. -- you might recall that i fought hard for that principle. i was criticized by some at that time. the fact is that if they go this way in the reconciliation, i think that you will see a backlash in the u.s. senate and across this country. the institution of the senate works on the 60 votes basis in many occasions. sean: have you talked to any of the leadership about this? have you talked to harry reid? the republicans have been left out of the process. there has been no discussion even with you? >> no, and i would point out that the legislation that passed the committee and the house was democrat proposed and we try to amend and everyone was turned down. this is not bipartisan nor has there been any sign

and senate majority leader harry reid are planning to use a crisis as an excuse to declare martial law. it's all part of socialism. >> they have one agenda, that's socialism. i call it a steamrolling socialism being driven by nancy pelosi, harry reid and fueled by barack obama. actually there's a history of that. why would a government ever use a crisis to consolidate power and put military on america's streets? oh, yeah, you're right, there is a history, just not in democratic administrations. scaring your town hall seniors with threats of socialism and martial law? that's fear mongering "psychotalk," congressman. >>> and the congressman who proposed the end of life passage of the bill joins me to set the record straight right here on "the ed show," next. plus or panel will respond to my commentary on the christian faith and moral obligation to deliver health care in this country. that's next up here on "the ed show." bicycle, what are we waiting for? the flowers are blooming. the air is sweet. and zyrtec® starts... relieving my allergies... 2 hours faster than claritin®. my worst sympt
for a second plan. declaring all out war in the senate. harry reid might soon decide to split the health care bill into two parts. one would contain less controversial measures like regulations on insurance companies. this bill would receive at least the 60 votes needed to pass it. the second half of the bill would contain the reckless budget details of the plan and the government auction. with virtually no republican support, democrats might use reconciliation to pass it. they would need only 51 votes to push this through. when asked about the possibility of these measures, a spokesman said, "we are determined to get something done this year by any legislative means necessary." democrats are willing to turn their backs on the american people who put them in office. are they really that stupid? joining me is the chairman of the republican national committee. michael steele is back. welcome back to the program. "by any means necessary." does this mean that the will of the american people, as evidenced by every credible poll, means nothing to them? >> when has it ever mattered? this administrat
